Work-Based Learning Professional Development For SY 2020-21

URI Provides Professional Development that prepares a certified teacher to deliver the Work-Based Learning course.

  • The PD assumes the teacher has or is participating in the URI Intro to Computing &, Data Science program.
  • The PD makes no other assumptions about the background of the teacher, except that they are willing to learn.
  • The PD includes all curricular materials necessary to teach the course.
  • URI has U.S. Department of Education funding and support from CS4RI that allows it to provide free PD to schools participating in the CS4RI High School Grant for the 2020-2021 school year.
